Smile with your eyes.
Smile not to please, but to express yourself. If you smile to please somebody, only your lips will stretch. But when you express your joy, your eyes brighten up.
You are not a walking-talking bundle of bones and flesh. You are a being full of happiness and
joy. This is often forgotten under the chores of everyday life. Awaken the happiness in you once again. You are born with it. For this you must look at everything you come across as agents of happiness and joy. This cannot be done without your eyes. For long you have trained your eyes to be unconscious and mechanical. Now it is time to retrain it to look at life differently.
Eyes are your windows and doors to the world around you. When you look at something, look at it as though you are seeing it for the first time. It could be the simplest things you come acros each day. Bring consciousness into it by making it a conscious act. Everything in life is alive.
Even a dead body is not really dead. It is full of life. When you look at it with the eyes of
consciousness, it can show you things you have never seen before.
Joy cannot be a pretence. You must connect yourself with that state of existence within and
around you. Do not look down upon anything as ordinary. Everything in existence is full of
wonder. Allow your eyes that freedom, and you will see for yourself its smile.
